Subject: The Meh train is leaving the station..
Pretty static film of trains and trolley busses going back and forth. It would be more interesting if there were people, buildings, anything! But not much of that going on here.

Subject: Overall commentary on subjects
This video brought back so many fond memories of what railroading used to be like in New York City back when I was a kid. Enjoyed seeing the New Haven EP-5 "Jets", the NH stainless steel "Washboard" MU trains, and the New York Central MUs. Also interesting seeing the New York Central electric locomotives. I always thought the NYC electrics were ugly contraptions but I now appreciate their rugged quality and reliability. This video should have sound professinally dubbed in as their are companies now that do this for rail related subjects. If done, the owner should make certain that the whistles from the New Haven equipment are the "Hancock" series.
